Planned Parenthood director says illegal abortionists used “good technique”

Planned Parenthood medical director Alan Guttmacher said, in 1960:

“Illegal medical abortionists operate in several different ways. Usually they are listed in the medical bluebook under disguised designations… They demand prepayment in cash… The technique of the well–accredited criminal abortionist is usually good. They have to be good to stay in business, since otherwise they would be extremely vulnerable to police action.

Most abortion clinics today also only accept payment in cash.
